Gunmen Kill 2 Officers In Renewed Attack.

Unidentified gunmen suspected to be members of the Eastern Security Network, an armed group of the Indigenous People of Biafra, on Saturday killed two police officers along old Gariki Road, Okigwe Council Area of Imo state.

State Police Public Relations Officer, Henry Okoye, disclosed this to newsmen in a statement to newsmen in Owerri.

Narrating how it happened, the command said the gunmen threw dynamite at the officers while on security patrol. Two of the officers were killed and four officers survived the attack after an exchange of gunfire with the attackers.

According to the command, the Commissioner of Police Imo State Command, CP Aboki Danjuma has condemned the attack and gruesome murder of personnel of Mopol 18, Owerri, by gunmen suspected to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra and its armed affiliate Eastern Security Network.

The officers were ambushed, while on patrol duties along old Gariki Road Okigwe by the disgruntled elements who threw dynamite on the officer’s patrol vehicle and engaged them in a protracted gunfight.

In the process, two officers paid the ultimate price while four others survived the attack.

The CP calls on the general public particularly the residents of Okigwe who may have any useful information that may assist the Police in the investigation to kindly do so by reporting at the nearest Police Station.
